Dover, Del. | $425,000
An 1846 house with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, on a 0.6-acre lot
This house, built by Thomas Stevenson, a cabinetmaker, is a few blocks from First State Heritage Park, which links some of Dover’s most important historic sites, including the Old State House, the state’s original capitol, built around 1791. Walking tours led by guides in Revolutionary War-era costumes are a popular activity, as is the 18th Century Market Fair, an annual event held in November, where visitors can learn about — and buy — crafts and food produced with Colonial-era techniques.
The property is a few minutes drive from Delaware Legislative Hall and several other state government buildings. Beach cities like Lewes and Rehoboth Beach are about an hour away, as is Wilmington, Delaware’s largest city. Philadelphia is about a 90-minute drive.
Size: 2,591 square feet
Price per square foot: $164
Indoors: The home’s brick facade is in good condition, with simple stone lintels above street-facing windows with red shutters.
